God's Promise: You Will be Changed

11/25/2022
God promises to change the believer by sealing us with a deposit of His likeness in us. It’s a slow change that happens over the course of our lifetime because it’s only a part-deposit. However, the full installment will be given to us in eternity. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 VF-2234 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott teaches from Faith Center in Glendale.

The Resurrection and the Concept of Contituity

11/24/2022
Though no proof is ever enough for some people, the accounts of the Resurrection are convincing because they include details that would damage the credibility of the storytellers if they were not true. The continuity we see in Christ's nature and His relationships with His followers shows us what we will be like in eternity. We will retain many of our essential qualities, but we will be sinless and have celestial bodies, finally able to have uninterrupted communion with God in His presence....

The Hope We Have in Christ Eternally

11/23/2022
This message begins with teaching about the true time of Christ’s birth. It is not the birth of a child that makes us Christians, but the fact of His resurrection. This leads us into the prophetic Psalm 16. This psalm by David describes living in the presence of the Lord, the portion of the Lord for the believer and the position and promise we have when we follow the Lord. Heaven will not be boring; it will be a place where there are godly pleasure for evermore. Psalm 16 VF-2216 Watch,...

The Character and Personality of the Holy Spirit

11/22/2022
This message lays the foundation for understanding the dimensions of the Holy Spirit's personality. Part of His work is to enlighten our minds about spiritual things, conforming us to the image and likeness of Christ. There is a danger of grieving, extinguishing, or quenching what God is doing by willingly ignoring the conviction that comes by the Holy Spirit. He is a person; holy and eternal, just like the Father and the Son; and He cares about us, helps us, and guides us. VF-2109 Watch,...

The Substance of the Cross

The substance of the cross is the message of the power of God to save. To those that are perishing, the message is foolishness, but to those that hear the truth, it is eternal salvation. 1 Corinthians 1:18 VF-2014 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at PastorMelissaScott.com Pastor Melissa Scott teaches from Faith Center in Glendale.

Start Over with God

11/18/2022
Teaching on the trilogy of parables in Luke 15, focusing on the Parable of The Father. The ones that listened to Jesus tell these parables were considered the worst of the sinners. We are all prodigals having wasted the inheritance given to us - our time, money, and faith opportunities. All of us at some point have squandered that stewardship, but it's never too late to start over with God. All it takes is the right attitude of facing ourselves and turning back to the Father's house. God...

The Birthright and the Promises to Abraham's Seed

11/17/2022
God made an everlasting covenant with Abraham. He blessed him and gave him the promise of land and seed, which would go on to become a great nation. Abraham passes on his possessions and all of these promises as an inheritance to his son Isaac, and Isaac to his son Jacob/Israel. But after Jacob/Israel dies, people get confused about how this inheritance, which includes the promises of seed, land, and kings, is passed on. A careful study of the biblical record can clear up a lot of confusion,...

Thank God He Qualified Us

11/16/2022

Arrabon: Sealed by the Spirit of God

11/15/2022
God has sealed us with His Spirit, the Arrabon, a part payment certifying us as authentically His, until we receive our full inheritance.

Inheritance ThrughFaith and Longsuffering

11/9/2022
An admonition to not become lazy in our faith, which is a malady that none of us are immune to. The method to avoid this malady is to follow in the footsteps of those in the Old Testament such as Abram, as an example of faith and longsuffering. We are to focus on the future of our inheritance with Christ rather than the present.

Jesus Christ: Heir of all Things

Jesus Christ is heir of all things: focusing on the word "heir" and its development to gain perspective on how the intended Hebrew readers would have understood the concept of inheritance and then making an application to us: we are co-heirs of eternal life with Christ by simple, childlike faith in Him.

Bless God For All That He Has Done

11/7/2022
A study in 1st Peter focusing on the words “blessed be”. Peter was telling the saints in trial and tribulation in his day (and us today) that we are to eulogize God BECAUSE of His abundant mercy. He has given us hope, inheritance, salvation and reserved in Heaven a place for us. This pattern of eulogizing God is consistent throughout the Old and New Testaments. We are to first praise, worship and thank Him as a continual faith practice. VF-1736 1 Peter 1:3 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

Gideon: Courage and Strength that Comes from God

11/3/2022
We are under constant attack because of our stand for Christ. Courage, seated in the living God, comes from some certain knowledge of what God has promised. In light of the event of a Molotov cocktail thrown at this building late in the week, we look to Gideon as a type; going from confusion about God's presence and power in a circumstance of persecution, poverty and powerlessness; growing in courage in the commission and calling, with its embedded promise: the Lord is with thee.

God's Care for the Bruised Reed and Smoking Flax

11/2/2022
One of the basic faith messages that needs to be repeated is that of the bruised reed and smoking flax that God will not break or quench. There are many examples in the Bible of nearly broken people to show how there is always someone that we can identify with no matter what we are going through. The bruised reed / smoking flax condition is terrible, but it is also terribly necessary for our growth. God taking us from victory to the lowest lows and bringing us through speaks to His care for...

The Seven Churches: How to Overcome

11/1/2022
Each of the seven churches suffered from something that had the power to hinder them from overcoming. As believers, we face the same things in a life-long battle for our soul, and for the church: a wrestling match with the world, the flesh, and the devil. Overcoming isn’t easy, but if we focus on Christ, the giver, the one who already overcame the world, the flesh, and the works of the devil, none of these things will separate us from Him who's given us the key to overcoming, and that is by...
